Strong petrol and rosemary oil notes suffuse the ripe white orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There are hints of bitter lemon and quinine on the rich, bold and robust flavors that possess very good mid-palate density though there is noticeable warmth on the otherwise lingering finish. This is no model of elegance but it can’t be faulted for lack of character. Note that this could easily be enjoyed on the younger side thanks to the abundant dry extract. 90/2023+
